Are your little angels singing the lyrics to, “Let it Snow” while running around in shorts and flip-flops? Well they’re in luck! Blazing sunshine and warm temps aside, snow really is in the forecast for San Diego this holiday season. We’ve found flurries to revel in from the mountains and the malls to LEGOLAND and the Botanical Garden. Scroll through our slideshow for 12 places to have a snow white Christmas!
